Nosh: Seattle’s Best Fish & Chips, Bar None

It was a year ago almost to the day that my wife declared the fish and chips served by Nosh as the best ever she's had in the States. When I sampled the fish, I couldn't have agreed more. The thing is, Nosh is a food truck and the venue was the Crossroads Food Truck Snackdown. Since... Continue Reading →

Seattle Restaurant Week: Etta’s Seafood

Every April and October, Seattle area diners look forward to Seattle Restaurant Week. The program actually extends over a two-week period (except Fridays and Saturdays) and features many restaurants that have agreed to offer a 3-course dinner for $30 per person (and, in a few cases, two-course lunch for $15). These prices can be great values when... Continue Reading →

Surprises at the Crossroads Food Truck Snackdown

The latest Food Truck Snackdown at the Crossroads Shopping Center happened today, so we were sure to see what was cookin'. Two things were on the radar for this trip.

We tried to find Anjou Bakery in Cashmere to have lunch and to eat its legendary marionberry pie, but no... Continue Reading →

Fish and chips restaurants abound in the Pacific Northwest, not surprising when there's nothing but the Pacific Ocean to the west. Perhaps the most well-known fish-n-chippery in the Seattle area is Ivar's, once owned by Ivar Haglund whose image and personality in local circles rivaled those of Colonel Sanders. His corporation also used to fund a big... Continue Reading →

Food Truck: Fish Basket

Among the benefits of having a dog is taking it on its daily walk. I might grumble about having to do this every day, but once I'm out on the sidewalk or on the dog-friendly trail, it isn't so bad. On rain-free, crisp mornings, the walks can be exhilarating. The exercise, so I tell myself,... Continue Reading →

Fried Fish from Coppell Place Seafoods (Christchurch, NZ)

Ask a bunch of Kiwis where they enjoy their favorite fish and chips and you're likely to get a range of opinions, so ubiquitous is this kind of shop throughout New Zealand. As an aside, an odd fact in New Zealand and Australia is that hamburgers are often sold in fish and chip shops, too.... Continue Reading →
